Why was this man ever ordained?

I don't know if you saw this sad story about a priest accused of murdering two people in Wisconsin. The priest committed suicide recently. From this story, however, it is very apparent that he had major problems. My question: Why was he ever ordained? Why wasn't he screened out? Certainly there had to have been indications that he had problems. Hopefully the seminary visitation process now going on will do something to help assure that candidates are chosen more carefully.
